No, but Gene Fowler from San Diego has a similar attitude. He's often
assured me that all country dances are the same -- they all begin and end
with a chord.
If, perchance, Gene might go the wrong way in a dance, I'm sure those
nearest him can here he mutter under his breath "Details, details..." It
sure gave me
a new perspective on accuracy in country dance.
